Barstow Community College Reviews
Rating 3.85 out of 5 164 reviews
This college has many opportunities to get a good education while having to pay very little to none for your tuition. There are lots of wonderful programs, and the staff genuinely cares and wants to make a difference in students' lives.
So far the school has been amazing. They care about the students and teachers are strict in good way.
Financial Aid is terrible. They give you inaccurate information, give you attitude, and are majorly inconvenient. I am struggling financially over their mistakes and I most likely have to drop out 1 class short of my degree. Some teachers push personal agendas and one was extremely cruel to women. They make it too hard to complain, so the awful professors just stay around for a while. This school was better a few years back, but now the quality of the school is slipping.
Barstow Community is a pretty okay college. It has good professors and classes, from what I've experienced. (I am a high school student doing dual enrollment classes.)
Barstow Community College is a gem I never knew I needed! My mother introduced me to this school almost two years ago. I graduated this May 2022. From the beginning process of enrollment, to speaking with a counselor, and the registration, it was so smooth and very quick and easy. The counselors were all very helpful and resourceful. They made my journey a delight and I can’t thank everyone enough for their continued support throughout my 1 and half years there. I had the opportunity to participate in many programs that helped me financially and helped me advance educationally. Barstow has opportunities for lower income students, single parents, and veterans. They provide many services and during the pandemic, they helped students with housing needs, food, clothing, and fundamentals like laptops, books, and supplies. I recommend Barstow Community College to ANYONE looking to advance in their educational journey!
Great college for those returning to school or those just starting college. The staff was very friendly and helpful with registration, financial aid, finding degree plans to continue higher education after my time BCC. My instructors were amazing as well; I really enjoyed going to school there.
I love this college, the teachers are so wonderful and the counselors help a lot too . This was my first semester going back to school after 10 years and I was able to get the classes that I needed from the help of one of the counselors. Mr. Christiansen was the counselor and he help me get all my classes I needed for online. The teachers are really easy-going I feel and I look forward to taking other classes there until I transfer. The EOPS program is amazing they help you with free books, gas cards and food cards. I thought they help you stay on track because they require a quarterly report for your grades. Overall I really love attending this college. Even though Barstow College is in a desert area it’s actually a really nice campus and does not get too hot in the summer.
I went here for two years before transferring. The campus did not have any problems, and the courses were reasonable. I did have some problems transferring, but that seems to be a given. Also, I wish that I had taken my major classes at the university. My economics classes were good enough for a business degree, but I was unprepared for upper level economics courses.
I currently take classes online to accommodate with my job schedule. Im in the military and it helps alot.
I just graduated high school this year and was ready to start my life and BCC gave me all the tools to take that first step. The classes online are different because I’m a hands on learner but the classmates are willing to helps and work with you.
The campus I pretty nice and the staff and faculty and very kind and helpful. My first experience in campus was great I was given a tour around the entire campus, and got to learn about the clubs and programs on campus.
I have been attending Barstow Community College the last year and a half and I have really enjoyed my enrollment.
I had a good time attending Barstow Community College. I struggled through some classes, but I felt like I meshed well with my professors and made some great connections. The student government does a fine job promoting events, and there is plenty of support to get its students to move along to a 4 year of their choosing. The highs of the school are some of its professors, its theater program, and a great number of its faculty. Its lows are the employment opportunities, the number of students that are just there for a check, and a general sense of apathy among some of the students.
I love the ease of getting into the courses I need. There is no parking to pay for. Because of the small campus size and student population, I am able to see a counselor on almost any day with or without an appointment. The faculty is very supportive and involved in campus affairs.
Barstow College is doing an excellent job of ensuring that student enrollment rises and that they graduate through the helpful resources that the college offers.
Great college with an awesome satellite campus that’s located on ft Irwin. The staff is awesome and the counselors go the extra mile to help the students out.
Ive only taken online course here. They are very easy to get into. No waiting list. Most instructors are clear about the rule brick and what is required in order to pass the class. I would highly recommend this college for those seeking a higher education. Those who have children and aren't able to leave the house for class. Only required to attend the school once for your final. Unless you can find a college nearby that will sign the proctor form.
